I actually finished my pack of pills about 2 weeks after I got my copper iud, so my period was pretty light that time. Then after that it came right on time, just crazy heavy the next month. After 4 or so months the heaviness calmed down; still heavier than before but not insane. 

I was only on the pill for a year and a half though.

I don’t understand your question- so you’re on the pill and then on the day of your 1st placebo pill you’re getting the iud inserted? ok so of course your period will start. You want to know if that 1st period will be longer? probably not but it will be a lot more painful because the iud is settling.

Usually my period starts on day 3 of placebo pills- are you asking if with the  iud will your period start on day 1? there will be spotting on day 1 and gradually get heavier, I’d guess your period will start the next day.

wait, i think I got my reading comprehension skills back! haha

“I know that sometimes going off the pill it can take months to get your period again and that the IUD can make your period longer.. so I guess I’m wondering if the IUD will “speed things up” in terms of when it will return?”

OK- by longer they mean you will possibly bleed more- like if you usually bleed for 4days you will now bleed for 6-7. And ‘speed things up in terms of when it will return’- the copper iud will set your system like clockwork, you will definitely get your period every month, no missing periods whatsoever.
